All 75 members of the Prosper ISD coaching staff congregated at the arena for the PISD Coaches Convocation held by Athletic Director, Valerie Little.
The two-day event, held the Thursday and Friday before school started, was a kick-off to the 2017-2018 school year and featured a presentation from PISD Superintendent Dr. Drew Watkins, Coach Little, and a motivational speaker.
During the convocation, coaches were certified in CPR and were photographed for the athletic directory. During Friday’s session, Coach Little presented the “Year in Review” and “Setting the Tone for 17-18”. Friday afternoon, Coach Little and head Prosper football coach, Brandon Schmidt drew for door prizes, valued from $15-200 each, donated by local businesses. Athletic department partners, such as PISD Transportation and Cedarbrook Media, publishers of Prosper Times and PROSPER Magazine, were also invited to share information with the group.
Jody Woolverton, PISD Transportation Director gave each of the coaches instructions on bus safety, as well as information on acquiring a CDL Driver’s License. Renee Marler with Cedarbrook spoke about the importance of a close partnership between media and coaches in highlighting the successes of the kids and the program as a whole. Cedarbrook Media reiterated its dedication to PISD athletics and announced some exciting additions to coverage starting this fall.
Cedarbrook Media, in conjunction with Bodine Orthodontics and TripleG Group will be hosting a tailgate party, complete with food, games, and even a live pre-game podcast starting 2-hours before all home football games. More information will follow soon with the details.
